Paralympics 2012 London


20120911-003713.jpg

I done a post on the 2012 Olympics and mentioned how all the participants done so well! Then the Paralympics came round.. And I’m speechless!

20120911-003707.jpg

People say that they’re Superhumans and I took that so lightly! I shrugged it off and made nothing of it because I never realised the impact their ‘disability’ had on their lives!

20120911-003727.jpg

When the opening ceremony arrived, I looked the athletes that came in on wheelchairs, with no arms, no legs and some with no limbs at all! And that’s where I thought.. How will these people swim, fight and play? How is it humanly possible to do so?

The first game I watched was Basketball.. Which quickly became my favourite! I LOVE IT! As well as watching it for the Olympics, I’ll keep up to date with it throughout the USA, Canada and GB players careers because they’re amazing! How a player can shoot a ball from a standstill (or sit still), with one hand and LAUNCH it to the other side of the court.. It’s beyond my understanding how they do it!

20120911-003722.jpg

The training they do is excruciating! Not only for athletes who train day in and day out without the help needed of equipment! Remember.. The sprinters on the tracks have to take the weight of their wheelchairs too.. With their arms!!! THESE PEOPLE ARE AMAZING!!!

20120911-004513.jpg

What us viewers and spectators fail to realise is that these people train for YEARS! Not a few months prior. They put their life and soul into their dreams and they don’t stop until they succeed!

These people who have no limbs.. A tragedy which we feel will leave them unable to live their lives normally.. But look at them! They live their lives EVEN MORE! They go abseiling, bun-jee jumping and take part in the worldwide phenomenon.. The Olympics!!

How can a person who has no vision, throw something so far? Someone who has no arms, swim? Someone who has no legs, run? It’s amazing!!!

Once again:
To all the staff.. Including my beautiful cousin, Miss. A.. CONGRATULATIONS!!! You worked in the Olympics which is probably one of the most rarest jobs in the world!

To all the volunteers.. Thank you for everything you did to make these games so special.

To all the coaches, trainers and health people.. You made some of the best athletes

But most of all.. To the athletes..

Thank you for opening the eyes of those people who are so naive to think that having a physical problem would limit your dreams.

Congratulations for taking part in a once in a lifetime opportunity.. If you’re in the UK, your one-time dream of competing in the most prestigious event in your hometown.. YOU DID IT!

Well Done for being so brave! You are like no other human on the planet.. You’re truly unique!

Next time you see someone in a wheelchair, don’t label them disabled.. They’re not.. They’re able! More than able! They’re incred-ABLE!

Men’s hairstyles


I’m a big fan of hair!!! You’ll never guess it with the fact that I don’t show mine! But rather than doing a girls hair tutorial, I thought I’d do a boys hairstyle post! I actually use to work at a hairdressers for experience! My neighbour is also a hairdresser and when I used to go to her house, she used to cut men’s hair and I would love watching her style it!

Mr. A’s conviction is thinking of a new hairstyle! I’ve known him for a LOOOONG time and he’s always had the same hair with a variance of length here and there! I’ve told him to grow it out longer than he normally would so that it could be cut differently with a lot to work with!

Let me give you some tips:

  • Matte hair!!! If you have short hair, aim I use clay of some sort because shiny short hair doesn’t look too good
  • Men’s hair looks nicer a week after it has been cut! If you’re going to an event, get it cut prior because the worn in look in men’s hair looks better
  • Oil your hair! If you like the natural style and don’t really use product on your hair, to make it it flow and fall better, oil your hair every week for half an hour then rinse! It strengthens your hair, makes your hair shiny and is healthy!
  • Don’t use heat on your hair! Men like to blow dry their hair because ‘it feels good’ (at least Mr. A loves that)! Because the hair is shorter, it is easier to damage! So aim to naturally dry!
  • Some products I love:

  • American Crew moulding clay
  • Vatika hair oil
  • Kala Kola hair tonic
  • Here’s some hairstyles that I love!!
    By the way.. David Beckham pictures have been added in because I like his hair.. But mainly because he looks WOW!
